Gabon Ebony Handled Dovetail Saw

Gabon Ebony Handled Dovetail Saw

$695.00

Our original Dovetail Saw handled in Gabon Ebony. Gabon Ebony is perhaps one of the most sought after tropical hardwoods in the world. It grows in the equatorial areas of Africa and is very hard to log, dry and bring to market. Long held as the most desirable exotic for old tools, this wood was often prized for stuffing levels and shoulder planes. This particular piece of ebony is jet black with just the slightest hints of dark chocolate streaks which gives it a very striking look.

This saw has a 9" long blade with 1 5/8" under the back. The blade is .018" thick with a uniform, even set measuring .025" sufficient for easy cutting in dry seasoned hardwoods. The teeth have a progressive pitch which start at 16 points and become coarser over the length of the blade ending up at 13 points under the handle. This allows for a saw that is easy to start and fast in the cut.

Other features include:

Hand Filed and Hammer Set Teeth

Custom, hand carved handle designed for the ultimate in sawing comfort

Arrives in fitted case suitable for storage or gifting
